Brother Wiley, as he is referred to by many, leaves us a legacy of love and compassion for others. He believed that God is always good and instilled that into everyone whose path he crossed. His personal ministry was to love and touch people from all walks of life. No one was ever a stranger

Jesus Christ and prompted everyone to do likewise. Wiley retired from Polk County Schools after 30 years of dedication as a 7th grade math
teacher. Wiley was a faithful member of Family Worship Center in
